My favorite aspect of makeup is how easily I can change it and play around with it. While I typically stick to a fairly minimal routine of tinted moisturizer, concealer, cheek tint, and mascara — I’ve been enjoying switching things up recently. I’ve been drawn to shades of bronze, copper, and plum.
For eyes, I love to swipe a single wash of color over the eyelid combined with lining my top lash line with a brown or bronze pencil (my favorite is Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Smog and Whiskey — they don’t budge!). I rotate between two eyeshadows: Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze and Nars’ Eye Shadow in Ondine. I keep it simple and just use a single color on my eyelid to crease (I’m no pro at smokey eyes after all…).
For lips, I’ve been enjoying sheer pinks and plums. I am a long-time fan of Revlon’s Lip Butters — recently, I’ve been using the shade Sugar Plum the most. My favorite sheer lipstick has to go to Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine Sheer Lipstick in shade 54 “Boy” — a very popular nude-pink shade.
What are your current makeup favorites for fall?
